  1. It's a good blade! I Like it, but didn't they usually sign " Bushu Shitahara..." ? Of course no rules without exceptions. I'm just curious. Any references? Please enlighten me.
  2. I think the signature appears to be kanehiro, but I might be wrong.
  3. My collection is missing a naginata, so i started looking for a descent one. Horimono ( especially bonji ) are very welcome. Time period -> the older the better. Budget -> ~5000$ Not looking for a specific school. Offers are welcome. Show me what you got! Greetings
  4. I am looking for a copy of ise no toko. If you have one for sale, feel free to message me. Best Regards
  5. Looking for a katana with horimono. Simplicity works best for me so i prefer the ones with bonji characters. No specific smith in mind. Feel free to show me what you find/got. Cheers

    First Nihonto

    Hey NMB members! The first Nihonto is always special I was looking for a blade with an interesting background history, rather than a high class flawless nihonto and this is what i got back then : a 70,3cm Katana signed Morihisa from the muromachi period. Even though it has tokubetsu kicho papers, i am doubtful of it's signature. I didn't find any reference to a niji mei Morihisa. Feel free to share your opinion. The hamon is choji and gunome midare mixed with suguha at the top. The hada is itame. It has a homare kizu on the mune ( maybe the interesting background history ) but it's still very catchy. Just wanted to share some quick shots of it. I will try to take pictures asap. The blade was accompanied by a simple black koshirae with a solid silver habaki. Enough talking. Enjoy Cheers Dominik
  9. Hello NMB members! I've been enjoying the board silently for quite a long time now. I think it's about time to introduce myself. After buying my first katana in Japan a few years ago, i fell in love with collecting nihonto and we all know the rest of the story right? Today my collection consists of 4 blades (3 koto, 1 shinto). Studying the Japanese sword has been really rewarding for me and you guys were part of it. Thank you! Still i feel like i am just at the beginning of a lifetime journey of learning. Anyway let's have a good time studying/discussing/collecting/admiring Japanese swords and other arts together! Dominik
